    R9 280X or GTX 760

    More specifically:

    $265 - http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperCloc...zg_bs_284822_6
    $230 (When amazon get stock) - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    Will probably be getting a refund done, but I just need to know which one would work better in my system.

    280x for performance
    760 for lower power consumption/noise/heat

    Your best bet would be with the Amd card. Especially for mantle support with newer titles.

    Doh
    Depends on what you want,
    -760 has more optimization right now with nvidia releasing drivers on the wazoo, and should run alot cooler(thus less noise)
    -r9 280x should give you better performance(its a rebranded 7970) but has higher power consumption and runs hotter(noisier)

    -personally i say go with the r9 280x

    I'm an IT guy, and since games are asking alot of memory...
    Buy a GTX 760 with 4GB RAM!
    I'm not an AMD fanboy or Intel fanboy, but if the prize isn't a problem go for Intel.

    R9 280X is far more superior than the GTX 760 in terms of performance, but if you're trying to have less heat, noise, and power consumption than the GTX 760 is the right decision.
